as a beginning of a buffer for that adolescent. talk to us a little bit about that. sure. well, i think in just about every setting, a child exists in there are caring adults available, or there can be caring adults available who can be a protective factor to a child and help that child access their own inner resilience. so including things like helping children realize that they can use humor, that they can develop close relationships with safe adults. teaching children ways that they can be safe. okay, if you can't bring friends home because crazy things are happening there and you can't study there how can we put something in place so that you have a safe place to go after school? if you're concerned about your siblings then how can we make sure that their needs get met? so really, i think we just need to encourage adults to not ignore signs that a child is struggling and reach out to children and to kids to say if you have one caring adult in your life who is in your corner that can make all the difference for you. absolutely. i absolutely think so and you know the issue is th

united states' role is to standby the ally. to show a dime's worth of distance diplomatically between us and israel, to work to bring the parties together and to seek progress, but not the weaken the prospects of progress and an agreement at some point, that might be different of our ally. >> would you ask israel to freeze settlement activity on the east bay? >> i believe the issue is something which should be discussed in private by the american president and our allies. again, when we show diplomatic distance tweens ourselves and our ally, i think we encourage people who oppose that relationship, to seek other means to achieve their ends. i think the best thing we can do is to communicate very clearly to the palestinians and our friends that the way to peace is for them to meet and resolve their differences, rather than to look us to to resolve the distance or to look to the united nations to do it. i done think my role, particularly as a candidate, is to begin suggesting what the terms of an agreement might look like. >> let's talk about iran. you've been robust in saying you will not

francisco. housing affordability crisis. this charter amendment will move us in the direction of addressing that crisis we are at risk of losing a primary source of affordable housing funding. the housing trust fund will recapture that funding and make sure we are dedicating it to affordable housing. this trust fund does more than establish a sustainable stream of funding for several decades. it also recognizes in addition to a government investment, we also have to make sure that we are providing the private sector with the proper incentives to create enough housing to meet our population's demand. public investment and private investment are two pieces of the puzzle. this recognizes the balance. this resulted from a terrific collaborative process. i strongly support it and i encourage you to do so as well. i want to thank the mayor's office who played a key role in moving this forward. president chiu: supervisor kenneth. -- kim. supervisor kim: it will hopefully be moving forward to the november ballot this fall. many of us campaigned on pushing and supporting a ballot measure

the soma area. and there was a land use map that was part of that that showed a great variety of land uses in the area. and i'm afraid what's going to happen as somehow we assume that we're going to have to accommodate growth and increase the density, and i don't know where that notion comes from except from developers. and, you know, that we're going to lose all that. and it's going to be extremely difficult, i think, for us to be able to really make a huge difference in the way -- the future of soma is going to look. maybe that's too pessimistic. but i've been on this commission for six years. and i've been on the landmarks board, and i've been on the board of appeals. and i'm telling you, none of those bodies are able to control the kinds of things that i think need to be done. because it comes from a regulatory framework. and that's what we do. we're regulators. we have very few tools to offer incentives and to drive economics in the direction that a lot of us have been talking about. and, you know, i appreciate commissioner martinez's comments. but again, we're not in contro

much the same plan except the we are making a few design changes to incentivize our employees to use in the network dental service providers. vision is the same and we have a new winner in terms of a rfp process. where we have a significant change is the blue shield program. it has been a fully insured program or the city pays for a certain premium for each member. no matter what the cost of the benefits of people going to the hospital or to see a doctor, blue shield covers that because it is fully insured. when we first started the process this year to review the raids, the rates came in high for blue shield and we tried to look for many different options to bring that cost down for the employer and for the employee. if we were to go with the status quo and we knew our rates as is with blue shield, we would see that our increase would be about $39 million increase for the year, 13.2% increase would members can $20 million of that and the city picking up $19 million. that seemed like it was not a good situation in terms of the city having to pick up additional expenses. but also would m
